replacing 2.4 jtd 10v gearbox - wobbly drive shaft?
OK car went in for a service with the lad i normally use. he was doin the aux belt pulleys and i was dropping the oil (again) while it was on the ramp
he was having a quick look over the car and the pass side drive shaft moved about a bit in the gearbox - not imminent failure but could do with sorting at some point (when the box goes BANG !!!!
) said it was a failing diff bearing but if i dont wheelspin everywhere should be ok for a while yet.
anyhoo what options do i have with gearboxes. Is it just a straight swap with another 2.4 10v box or can i use a v6 or TS or 2.4 20v/1.9 16v JTD box? can i drop in a 6 speed? Clutch will need doing soon anyway so may as well chuck the box in when i am havin the clutch done. quicker and easier than rebuilding the existing box. Seeing as it will all be apart anyway i'll do the bottom arms as well as i think they are original and car has now done 108K miles ! I dont mind spending money on the car as shes worth more to me than parkers says shes worth in money. I know everything that has been done already and i know i could go and put the money i am spending on the box etc towards another car but although slightly flawed in places......shes gorgeous and mine
